Lewis County Sends One
Democratic Representa
tive—The Heavy Vote of
Southeast Pulls Haines
Safely Into the Gover
nor's Office.
The Increased vote for Haines shown
in late returns over the earlier returns
from the same counties, hae Increased
the lead of Haines beyond any reason
able possibility that Hawlsy con over
take him, even though the later re
turns Increase Hawley's lead over
Haines In the northern counties beyond
the earlier reports. For Instance Haw
ley has made considerable Increase In
Nez Perce, Lewis, Clearwater and Ida
ho counties, but Haines has made an
Increase from 200 given In Cassia coun
ty to 600 shown In the late reports;
from 1000 estimated In Bannock county
to 1100 upon practically complete re
turns. Haines holds up practically to
the 800 given him In Bonneville and the
800 given In Bingham and Increases
greatly In Fremont over the earlier re
ports, so that It appears likely that
Haines Is elected by from 1000 to 1500
In the state over Hawley with Martin
third. Martin failed to receive any
where near the vote claimed for him
In north Idaho although In most of the
counties he put Haines third in tho
race Just the same as he Is In ihe
Haines still goes to the southeast
ern counties without having carried a
single county In the state outside of
the Mormon belt and as a poor third
In nearly all of them outside that belt.
In the state at large, outside the Mor
mon counties he ran more than 5000
votes to the bad, but tlie Mormon
counties gave him over 7000 to the
good—a vote practically equal to that
given Gooding six years ago when Du
bois was deliberately driving the Mor
mon vote to the Republican ticket,
without the advantage of the offset
that Dubois made by hla fight In other
counties of the state.
Democrats Gat a Legislator.
The only other new development to
day Is the fact that the Democrats get
a representative from Lewie county.
This gives them seven votes on Joint
ballot In the legislature, provided the
two Owyhee members are Democratic
which Is generally believed, although
the vote Is very close on both of them.
The Democratic legislators Include the
senator and one representative from
Lemhi, Custer and Owyhee and the
representative from Lewis county.
Oneida County.
